This book has also been made into a movie.
This quietly moving story of family, friendship, and love, by the author of HANNA'S DAUGHTERS, has already become an international best-seller and will no doubt capture the hearts of other readers as well.
Simon Larsson is a pensive and thoughtful boy growing up in Sweden during World War II, fortunate to be safe within a remarkably loving and cohesive community. Half Jewish, he is being raised by his Scandinavian aunt and uncle, who adopted him as their own at birth. In a novel rich in mystical overtones, his adoptive parents take on truly archetypal dimensions.
